2-3 more days of freezing temps before slight warm up

DENVER — A few flurries were flying Monday morning, but both the light flakes and the below-freezing temperatures were expected to come to an end this week.

However, the flurries, which tapered off early Monday morning, came to an end much sooner than the freezing temperatures, which aren’t expected to subside until later this week at the earliest.

With partly to mostly sunny skies and southwest winds, Monday afternoon is expected to see high temperatures of around 18 degrees, which, after five days of temperatures of 17 or colder, might feel like a bit of a break.

Expect breezy conditions statewide Monday afternoon, especially in the Foothills, as southwest winds pick up to around 10 to 15 mph. Despite the fact that those winds will make things chilly Monday night, with lows around 7 degrees, they are expected to help clear the ways for warmer temperatures, with highs in the 20s on Tuesday and Wednesday.

High temperatures are finally expected to climb back above freezing on Thursday, and remain there through the weekend.
